Object in CA defied known laws of physics.

Driving in somewhat desolate area on White Rock Rd near Aerojet. Noticed stationary lights in sky at a distance. Drove past and for some reason decided to turn around. I turned my vehicle around and approached the area where the lights were located - again at a distance. They were above an area that had a chain linked fence and was actually Aerojet property.

As I approached I noticed the outline of what appeared to be the outline of a bowl shaped figure. As I brought my vehicle to a complete stop in the middle of the roadway, I noticed that the "bowl shaped figure" had begun to turn.

I focused upon the figure itself as it turned. While my eyes were fixated on the figure at a distance, I suddenly and instantaneously sensed a very close presence. Within the blink of an eye - the object that began it's turn at a distance completed it's turn two feet from the driver's side of my vehicle.

The object appeared to defy known physics and made absolutely no sound.

As it completed it's turn, several very bright lights came on. I did not feel heat but the lights themselves were somewhat blinding. Due to the closeness of the object to my vehicle and the lights - I could not see the object in it's entirety.

The portion of the object that I could see at that point, however, was not particularly bowl shaped but, rather, appeared somewhat rectangular and similiar to the front grill of a car (but much larger). There were approximately a total of six lights- three on each side - that, again, were large and very bright. When they went on - it was similiar to a "lights, camera, action" scenario where you see movie lights on a camera set turned on.

The object remained in the air and at it's lowest seemed suspended approximately one foot off the ground on the driver's side and at an angle. The rear - that I could not see clearly - appeared to be, perhaps, higher. There was a window of sorts - somewhat similiar to the front window on a vehicle but smaller.

I detected movement from within but could not see anything clearly (and did not want to). Initially I froze and then absolutely floored my vehicle in an attempt to get away. As I swerved down the darkened two lane road, the object that was facing the driver's side of my vehicle turned with the lights remaining on and faced the back of my vehicle.

I watched it in my rearview mirror - fearing that it would follow. It did not but, rather, turned once again, in the opposite direction. I drove to Hwy 50 (nearby) and took some comfort in the fact that I was surrounded by other (known) vehicles. To my left, however, as I drove a stretch of 50 heading home - I looked to my left and could see the lights of a very, very low flying object - flying parallel to me and at a distance.
